Connecting carotenoids from eye to brain: A new vision for management of age-related macular degeneration and dementia

Venue: Royal Society of Medicine


Event Notes:

Join us for the 2024 Howard Foundation Lecture, focusing on age-related macular degeneration and dementia. The lecture will be delivered by Professor John Nolan, Director of the Nutrition Research Centre Ireland, who will describe how research has identified a common factor in the causes of these diseases and how clinical trials have shown substantial improvements in both visual function and in memory and brain function.

In this lecture, Professor Nolan will explain how targeted nutritional supplementation of the eye and brain offers a safe and effective management option for AMD and Alzheimer’s disease. Moreover, this lecture will underline the need for early intervention using these nutritional formulations, to enhance the health and quality of life of the general population, while preventing the onset of these life-destroying age-related diseases of the eye and brain.

Following the lecture, you are invited to join us for a reception to network, relax, and enjoy a refreshing drink in the RSMs iconic glass atrium.
